“The Jeremy Lin Encore was even better.
Lin’s penetrating, playmaking and shooting willed the Knicks to another victory despite missing Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, and with center Tyson Chandler in foul trouble.
In another heroic performance, the former undrafted Harvard point guard was sensational in his first career NBA start. He lifted the club on his back without the Knicks’ two superstars. He set a career high for points, bagging 28, mostly on driving layups, and dished out eight assists as the Knicks beat the Jazz, 99-88, at the delirious Garden as Lin-mania continued.”
